Salzburg Small-Group Day Tour with Spanish speaking guide
The monuments and alpine scenery of Salzburg's UNESCO World Heritage Site lie just over the border from Munich in Bavaria. This tour ensures you maximize your time with round-trip transport by train, a guided walking tour of the city, and plenty of free time for shopping and sightseeing.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and up to 15 people at Munich’s Central Train Station. Then travel aboard an air-conditioned train, enjoying views of the Bavarian Alps and Austrian countryside on a 2-hour journey to Salzburg.

On a 1.5-hour walking tour, listen to your guide’s comprehensive introduction to the city. Discover Old Town, a UNESCO-listed site; admire historic landmarks, such as the Domkirche Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg); and learn more about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was born in Salzburg, and The Sound of Music, which was filmed in and around the city.

After the tour, spend around three hours exploring independently. Stroll around Old Town’s medieval lanes and browse the shops for souvenirs, sample traditional Austrian cuisine with lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), visit Mirabell Palace, or climb the hilltop to take in the views from the castle.

Your tour ends back at the Munich train station.

Liam the tour guide was wonderful. He knew so much of the history of the city and talked very natural, not like it was memorized. We had someone on the tour who was a real pain with constant interrupting and Liam handled the situation well....More

Hi. Depending on the tour guide it's usually about 7pm. The schedule will be explained when you meet the guide. The train journey alone is worth the money. The views are spectacular.
